After learning to write letters and then put words together, learning write sentences is a very important skill for kids. It can be easy to put sentences together while talking, but thinking about sentence structure and how to write a sentence properly can be a daunting task, nonetheless. In this post, we will share some funny and creative sentence starters to get kids curious.
Learn to Write Sentences the Easy (and Fun) Way
To help writing a sentence the easy way, it is best to make it fun. That is the first of several Language Arts tips I have for you. 😉 We love using these Story Starter Cubes because they are color-coded for the correct sentence elements and structure, but in a funny way. This really made a difference for my son and his understanding on writing sentences and how those sentences, making sense next to each other, make up some of the best stories!
Kids can learn write sentences with these cubes. They are made of durable foam, so they aren’t heavy or pose any danger if thrown. They come in 3 colors, blue for nouns, red for actions and yellow for places. Each sentence is created with all 3 cubes. With practice, children can then learn to write a complete sentence.
Funny & Creative Sentence Starters that Make Great Stories
When my son took three cubes (one of each color) and I took the other 3 in the set (again, one of each color), we would take turns rolling the dice. He chose to roll all three of his at the same time. I rolled mine one at a time. Once all 3 dice were rolled, we would arrange them in the blue, red and yellow.
Then we would read them out loud and make them complete sentences. For example, my son got “teacher,” call the police” and “at the zoo.” All he had to do was add “The” before teacher and a period at the end. I know that the dice could be placed in different order and still make complete sentences, but I wanted to keep it simple at first.
